Bee Day 2021


We do not hide the fact that we enjoy the odd jar of honey and that we do use some of the old or surplus supply of wax and honey but in the last 5 years we have never lost a hive to disease or starvation and each year we have had strong growing colonies and have had to donate our healthy strong colonies to other beekeepers as breed and expand as they should do. It is also worth saying that in the last 5 years we have taken a few jars of honey and have always left more than enough on the hive to see the bees through winter and have never needed to bulk feed our bees sugar syrups. So while we recognise that beekeeping in not the quaint hobby it used to bee, we believe that we are helping to ensure their survival and be over the moon when the wild populations are once again sustainable without our help.
